Two years ago at this time, I remember, was the first time my husband saw our little girl. He was in Iraq and supposed to be on his R&R so he can be there when I gave birth but our darling daughter decided to come out four days early.
I gave birth with only a friend beside me. After the delivery, they wheeled me to the mother and baby room which is a two patient unit. The good thing was I was the only one in the room. I can do whatever I want. I don't have anybody the whole time I was in the hospital and was left to take care of the baby at night or day time when I supposed to be resting. When I go to the bathroom I will bring the baby cart with me. There were two medical computer carts in the room where I also hold on to as I drag the baby cart to the bathroom. Then I locked the main door so I will not close bathroom door. I really wanted to go home the next day but I have to attend a discharge class before I can go home. I attended it the 2nd night I was in the hospital and fortunately, everything went well we were discharge the next day.
The first night at home from the hospital was very much okay. Although I was still sore, but I have to take care of our toddler and the newborn by myself. The night went by smoothly with God's grace. My friends came and brought us food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Then the second night hubby already arrived and I couldn't be more than happy seeing him. I told myself I can already get some good rest.
Wow, looking back I can't imagine I did all of it by myself. But I am very proud that I was able to. I believe that if you put your mind to it, and continue to pray and seek guidance, everything will go through smoothly. All the sacrifices and hardship is so worthy because I have now my beautiful girls. They are growing beautifully and very sweet.
